by Grown-Up Gappers and Career Breakers

We’re really proud of our diverse age demographic. In fact, one-third of our participants are grown-Up Gappers, Career Breakers and Mature Volunteers, i.e. between the age of 25 and over 75. Discovering the world and making a difference on an exciting travel experience is for everyone, not just the 16-30s! All our programs are open to all ages - the choice is yours, no limitations. Today really is the first day of the rest of your life!

Career Breakers: Our Projects make perfect career breaks and enable you to expand your professional and personal development, resulting in an excellent boost to your CV or résumé. In any economic climate, that's always a very good thing!

Grown-Up Gappers: If you’ve always thought that gap years and volunteering are for the 18 year olds out there, think again. Whether you’re stuck in a rut and need some time out to refresh your soul and get back your inspiration, or whether you’re just travel mad and think it’s time for another adventure, we’ve got the project for you.

Mature Volunteers and Retired Gappers: You have such skills and knowledge to offer! Our projects give you the perfect opportunity to contribute your skills, to make a difference in the world AND have a fantastic adventure!

Please take a look at any project that appeals to you and don't miss out - make a difference whilst having an amazing adventure!


This reminds me of why I became a teacher in the first place. Also, I was totally knocked out by the snorkelling, it was like swimming in a marine aquarium. In fact I wondered whether I had died and gone to heaven! Paul White (40), Malaysia. Paul did 4 placements over 4 years.

It’s a wonderful experience and something you’ll never regret doing. At the risk of sounding cheesy, it has changed my perspective on so many things. Most importantly, though, it’s made me realise that even if I can’t change the world, I can make a small positive difference. And not just to other people but to myself as well. We have made friends for life and there are people I can’t wait to see when we go back.

... We chose Travellers because of the level of support they offer their volunteers and the huge range of projects they’re involved with. Plus, they’re very flexible about the amount of work you’re required to do. You have the freedom to do as much, or as little, as you want. They turned out to be brilliant and I’d really recommend them to anyone considering voluntary work overseas. Steve and Jennifer Chilingirian
